Welcome back for my ONE ROOM CHALLENGE : WEEK TWO makeover!
If you are here for the first time you can see my plan in my first post here One Room Challenge : Week One
I have to admit up until Monday I was still trying to figure out exactly how to go about getting the look I want without it taking a ton of work and a ton of money. I have really been torn on how much of the brick I want left exposed. We actually enjoy the warmth and texture the brick adds to our home and do not necessarily want to completely hide it. My goal is to lessen the 70’s vibe I get from it.
This is a little drawing of it I posted on instagram this week.
This is where we are at week two of our makeover and I am very happy with where this is going. My husband is just kinda going with it until he can see it. I think he trust me. We will be married 15 years next week and I just keep telling him this is my anniversary gift. We have been in this house for 12 of those 15 years SO it is time! He has a hard time changing things because he lived here until he was 12. His parents built our home in 1968.
I am super excited to have gotten these bookcases from my sister for FREE! A BIG money saver.
I plan to trim them out to make them look my “built in” than free-standing and add to the top so they go all the way to the ceiling.
Thanks again for following along and come back next week for round 3 of the ONE ROOM CHALLENGE! Also wanted to add that there are lots of others participating in this challenge and I encourage you to check them all out here.
